What is peace to you?
For me it’s a sense of stillness and rest, where I have no anxiety or fear. Certain things can help me to get into peace, taking slow deep breathes can physically help me to fill my lungs with oxygen and release the fears and worries.
The environment I am in can give me peace. A comfortable room that’s cool, soothing instrumental music and putting on my aroma therapy diffuser with lavender scent. Lying in a beach chair in a beach listening to the waves can also bring me peace.
All these things can be wonderful but temporarily ,ultimately I want to know the ONE person that is PEACE and gives me lasting peace.
Jesus left this earth and reminded us that he is the Prince of Peace.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” ... “Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ
Satan our adversary comes as the deceiver, the one who can come as false peace.
2 Corinthians 11:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
Prayer: Forgive me to looking to the world and other things to give me peace. I want to know lasting peace which is in you Jesus. Touch me today to I would know the truth of who you are and your lasting peace. In Jesus name, Amen.
